A great an epic warfare
The game is a part of a truly exciting KOEI series and is based on the inspirational exploits of the famous Mongol ruler who once conquered the largest empire. They have tweaked the RK engine and have made it really effective for the purpose of handling tribal warfare and nomadic lifestyle. Here you get to exercise the option such as razing the cities that you have conquered. I found that the controls are swifter which facilitates an exciting hit and run combat. It's not just a fighting game because it also involves strategy making. When you are done with unifying Mongol empire, you get to use different strategic options e.g. using diplomacy in different scenarios etc. The game really gathers it user's interest as a real ruler who needs to fight as well as be effective in the strategy making. The graphics are no way ordinary as they have used 3D animations an images and the sound quality is also great and alluring. This series does not end here because after this one, they came up with Genghis Khan 2 - Clan of the Grey Wolf
which is as exciting with increased options.
